Just had to review again because my girl had such a good time! We left her in Lori and team's capable hands for a much longer stay this time. While we missed our dog terribly, our girl didn't miss us much and Lori sent us the hilarious photos and videos to prove it.

It was great seeing how well the resident dog and my dog got on so well.

Bottom line: if you want a great pet sitter, look no further. I just hope she doesn't become so popular that I can't get my girl in ;)

Excellent! Lori took well care of our Lab. Three daily walks, lots of toys indoors and out, and a revolving mix of canine companions. A caring and well versed pet sitter.
Lori and her family provided excellent care for my young border-Aussie, Turbo. Her house is dog friendly, I received daily pictures, and her resident pup is a sweetheart. Overall Turbo had an awesome time and came home as a healthy, happy, and tired pup! I would recommend Lori for your dog vacay.

My dog Blue, a high energy border collie, stayed with Lori for two weeks. From our initial meet and greet, Lori took great care to ensure that Blue had a comfortable stay. I received email and photo updates daily and could see Blue's fun adventures to the lake, hiking trails, and parks. They have a beautiful deck and backyard the dogs all seem to enjoy. It was very reassuring to know that my dog was safe, happy, well-exercised, and given lots of attention. Lori and her family love dogs and even taught Blue a few new tricks. Turner is the sweetest dog and would always let Blue get the ball.

Pepper enjoyed her dog vacay with Lori. She got to go swimming at the lake and hiking in parks. She met other dogs and spent a lot of time outside in the garden relaxing on the patio furniture. Lori is organized, professional and fabulous with dogs. She took excellent care of Pepper.

Ralphie had such a great time with Lori! For the entire time that we were away, Lori kept us up to date on how Ralphie was doing with texts and pics. Ralphie got to go on long walks, to Buntzen Lake, and relax in their wonderful backyard!

Lori also made a point to let me meet the other dog that would be staying at her house when Ralphie was with her.

We'll be looking to contact Lori again when we need a dogvacay for Ralph! Thanks Lori!

My girl came back to me happy and healthy. She looks like she had a blast in the parks and lakes the Lori took her to. Thank you so much for taking such good care of my older girl. I'll happily come back any time we have to go out of town :)
Lori was awesome. We needed a last minute sitter and she was able to accommodate us with very little notice. She took great care of our dog too!
My old guy was well cared for over the weekend. Pick up and drop off went smoothly. I was running late on Thursday but this was not a problem. Thanks for taking such good care of my pal Hal!
Lori was a great host. She took care of our girl like it was her own. Sent daily pictures and updates to my email and gave us lots of peace of mind.
She even went to get Maya more food when she realizes that wasn't going to be enough for her last day.
We would definitely have Maya staying with her again. Highly recommended.

Lori is so great with my dog, Layla. She has stayed with her 3 times now and every time she is excited to see her. She treats her just like she is her own dog. I received pictures every day and updates about how she was doing when I was away. Layla has an injury and Lori was really respectful of the limited exercise she is currently allowed. I can't say enough good things about Layla's stay with Lori. Thanks so much!

My dog had an incredible experience with Lori. She has a very warm, co comfortable and loving home. She took my dog on walks and has a safe yard to let him get fresh air and exercise. She texted me photos regularly - he was in good hands.
Thank you.

Lori is a very professional and warmhearted lady.
She looked after my Simba very carefully when Simba lived in her house. She cantected me everyday in the last month by email. She sent me Simba's photos and videos. I could know how was Simba doing everyday. She took Simba hiking and swimming. Thanks Lori and her family!

Lori was fantastic! I was stuck without someone to watch Bear and Lori took him in last minute and for 2 weeks! She sent photos of their adventures and I could tell Bear was having the time of his life. I will definitely be calling Lori next time I travel.

My pups are super happy and so am I :) Got pictures and videos every day, that was great!
Moxie had a great time enjoying Lori's beautiful house and yard. She got lots of petting and walks and Lori sent us some great pictures as well!
Lori and her family did a great job hosting Cooper. From the meet and greet I was confident Cooper would have a great time and comfortable leaving my dog for an extended period of time.

The frequent updates where great and reassured us that our dog Cooper was having a great time!

Thanks,

From all the great pictures that Lori sent me, it looked like Lucy had a great time. She was lucky enough to go to parks and hikes and Turner (the house dog) is her new friend. I highly recommend Lori... her messages that she sent me were so sweet and it is obvious she loved having Lucy which is what really matters! Thank you!

This is the second time our little dog has stayed with Lori and our dog seemed to have an even better time than the first time. Lori goes to extra trouble to send pictures to us so we know how our dog is doing. She pays extra attention to make sure our little dog is feeling safe, loved and happy. We are very greatful to have found Lori.

Our 2 year old labradoodle had a great time staying with Lori. Lori took the dog out for long walks, getting plenty of exercise everyday. We often received e-pictures updates. Lori is a great host.
Lori (and her entire family) are amazing dog sitters.
From the meet and greet, to the end of the 4 day stay, they all made me feel that my dog was very welcome in their home. There own dog is very friendly and a great playmate. Lori emailed me numerous pictures of the many walks they went on, she even took time off from work. I would be happy to board Samsara with them anytime.

Lori was so awesome - she took Sheldon in last minute, and constantly sent me picture updates as to what they were doing and how he was. Turner and Sheldon seemed to get along great, and Sheldon really enjoyed his days with Lori - so much so that he didn't want to come home, and kept escaping me to run back into the house! Thank you Lori!

Lori and her family took great care of our little dachshund. She is a dog who needs some extra care when she is out of her usual routine and Lori really provided that. She is an anxious dog and when we came to pick her up she was relaxed and transitioned well back into her regular routines. Lori sent us pictures throughout our time away which was lovely. It is a great relief to find someone like Lori who takes such good care of our girl when we are away.

Our energetic pup had an amazing time with Lori over the Christmas holidays! Not only was she very approachable, willing to meet and get to know us, but she took our puppy in and made her one of the family over the holidays. Luna returned to us (almost unwillingly!) well exercised and calm - a great sign that she had lots of love, attention and exercise. Should we ever need home boarding for our pup again, we will definitely book with Lori.

It was great to leave Winston with a responsible pet sitter like Lori. The home environment was so nice Winston did not want to leave. Lori took good care of Winston each day, took him for walks and treated him like part of the family. I would highly recommend Lori to others who want to leave their dog in a safe and loving environment and have peace of mind knowing that your dog is well cared for.

Lori and Dale were fabulous hosts to Angus. They took him for walks and swims and sent us daily pictures of all his activities. They were very accommodating and flexible with pick-up and drop off times. They were also very concerned and responsible about his dietary issues. You could tell they really loved dogs and Angus was extremely well looked after. He didn't want to leave! Thank you Lori and Dale!

I was hesitant to leave my dog with a new person. Our previous walker/sitter moved back to France. When I met Lori, I knew right away that my dog would be okay. She immediately made herself comfortable in their backyard. Lori was great at sending daily pictures and/or messages to let us know how our dog was doing. I'm sure that when she returned home she missed being with lori's family, including her dog Turner.
I highly recommend Lori to anyone wanting a home away from home for their dog.

Admittedly I was a little nervous to leave my Sadie with strangers. I realized pretty quickly upon meeting them that she was in great hands!!
Sadie was loved and cared for like their own. I received a text with a picture every day which went a long way in increasing my comfort level while I was away.
I almost hate to say great things because Sadie and I want them all to ourselves!!!
Thank you so much you three!! Sadie will be back!!
